A story of flying, drug smuggling and murder in the 1920s. Pilot Philip Stenning crashes his aircraft while flying from London to Devon.

Owing Compton his life, Stenning agrees to investigate Mattani's illegal activities.

Taken from sunlightbub's bookbox. The book synopsis vaguely intrested but, the author's bio really captured my imagination - "His books are based on his own wartime and aircraft industry experiences".

I loved another book I read by Shute - On the Beach. This, however, failed to grab me. Will try passing this on.
